in foreign policy, you highlight the threat from home grown terror, from self-radicalized extremists. you suggest that the government should, one, intervene in areas between radical beliefs and violent behaviours. it should instill trust in communities where alienation is likely and integrate a whole of government approach that embodies u.s. values, can you give us the short version. >> possessing radical beliefs is protected by our constitution. that is what freedom. speech and association is about. the first amendment to our constitution. it's a core value of the united states, one which many aspire to have and observe. that's all fine. what is not fine is when possessing radical beliefs inspires the person with those beliefs, or someone he or she talks to to engage in violence behaviour. that is not protected by the constitution. the difficult challenge for government is to know when to intervene to prevent somebody from harming the rest of us, just because that person has radical beliefs. that intervention area is hard to identify. the danger is that you end up suppressing people's fr
so much. president obama in his typical foreign-policy challenges are being magnified by recent events in afghanistan. president hamid karzai refuses to sign a security agreement with the united states that would define american military presence in his country at the end of the year. but he did agree to a new agreement with iran. he agreed in principle to a friendship and cooperation path dealing with security and economic issues and within hours of that agreement, he was also already calling for the removal of american forces from the area. he said that we believe that all foreign forces should leave the region and the security of afghanistan should be handed over to people of the country. the so-called moderate has aalowed executions to surge since he took office, with more than 300 people executed since just the month of august. iran is the leader in executions. president obama and other dignitaries are on their way to south africa to attend tomorrow's memorial service from nelson mandela. hitching a ride on air force one with the president and michele obama, former presiden
. >> i think it's a result of several years now of a foreign policy that seems feckless. i mean you can start with resetting the relationship with russia right at the beginning of the administration. you look at the situation with china. looks hike we're almost involved in a growing confrontation over those islands but also all kinds of trade issues. then in the middle east, things are worse in syria, egypt, things are worse, certainly are worse in iran and in libya. i can't find a place where thens have gotten better since president obama's gotten into office, and i've just spent a lot of time in south america and we're not doing too much better there either. >> i thought it was embarrassing for the united states when president putin played almost the role of dad and rescued us from a military action but on the other hand the whole thing was kind of humiliating. >> the president created that for himself by drawing a red line, seems like seven or eight times that if they used chemical weapons, there were going to be serious consequences. and then he didn't seem to know what to do when a
's the result of several years now of a foreign policy that seems feckless. i mean, you can start with resetting the relationship with russia right at the beginning of the administration. they reset it and it's much worse. you look at situation with china, looks like we are almost involved in a growing confrontation over those islands but also all kinds of trade issues. then the middle east, things that are worse in syria. things are worse in egypt. things are worse in certainly -- are worse in iran and libya. i can't find a place where things have gotten better since president obama has gotten into office. i have just spent a lot of time in south america. we're not doing too much better there, either. >> you know, i thought it was sort of humiliating for the united states in the issue over syria when president putin wrote a letter and sort of big footed president obama and sort of stepped in and played almost the role of dad and said i will take care of this. sort of rescued us from a military action. but, on the other hand, the whole thing was sort of humiliating. >> the president really creat
-- american citizens take government officials who nor this reality when they pushed their foreign-policy agendas based on this. guest: thank you for your question and i disagree with your premise, which is that the world trade center was an inside job with explosives. there are the studies out there and it is pretty clear that the -- those buildings were attacked by planes that were hijacked by al qaeda operatives. i know there is a continuing conspiracy theory community out there that think this was some sort of nefarious scheme to -- it is hard to take of things seriously. i know you may genuinely believe it but i encourage you to go out there and engage in debates. i don't think the conspiracy theory holds any water. host: maurice from ohio, democrat's line. i have a question about -- let's sayear tomorrow they have a nuclear bomb. whatd of want to know would be the consequence, what the world would do about it as compared to pakistan having a nuclear bone, india having a nuclear bomb. what will the u.s. or the rest of the world do if iran says they have a nuclear bomb today? that is
relations committee for 30 or 35 years, in the senate foreign policy was his biggest issue. he knows these subjects. he's have been experienced in them. he would be a good emissary. >> i think so. people tend to underestimate him this way. he does have the foreign policy experience. he's also very much a kind of one-on-one politician. what he's going over there to do is to defuse what is a toxic situation, and he's kind of the crisis manager. we've seen him perform this role -- >> i wouldn't say this in a way that's disrespectful. this should be handled at a lower pay grade. you may need the vice president to go talk to the chinese but to integrate a response from south korea and japan with the united states, that should be something that happens on the phone every day with lower level officials and it doesn't happen. >> it doesn't, and clearly this environment right now is very, very difficult. >> here's what he's trying to do. he's trying to send a powerful signal, the obama administration, to china and north korea. if you send a lower level person out there, that signal is going t
their foreign policy actually is. this is a perfect example where they have conflicting reports that confuse, oftentimes, our allies. when you come to foreign policy the most important thing you can do is have complete clarity. lou: administered by japan, as you certainly know well, for decades. and it is disputed territory in the sense that there are rich natural resources offshore. the chinese obviously want them. they're pretty important to our japanese allies as well. where does -- what is the smartest way to resolve this dispute? because it is certainly that. >> you are not going to completely resolve it because what you see is it is not just one area. china has been expanding their territorial claims. reseeded in the philippines. we see that the japanese. last year alone the japanese had to scramble their planes over 300 times because of chinese planes coming toward their territories. what we see in this particular situation, if we are going to try to attempt to stem and deal with it, the united states has to be very clear, have a strong presence because that is a very common in floods
you think, share your thoughts on obama foreign policy with other fox news sundayviewers on twitter at sundayviewers on twitter at #fns. this is the quicksilver cash back card from capil one. it's not the "limit the cash i earnvery month" card. it's not the "i only earn decent rewards at the gas station" card. it's the no-games, no-signing up, everyday-rewarding, kung-fu-fighting, silver-lightning-in-a-bottle, bringing-home-the-bacon cash back card. this is the quicksilver card from capital one. unlimited 1.5% cash back on eve purchase, everywhere, every single day. so ask yourself, what's in your wallet? >>> critics in this country and the middle east continue to question the nuclear deal the u.s. and its allies worked out with iran. and there is increasing concern about the new air defense zone that china has declared over disputed territory in the east china sea. joining me now to discuss this and more, former cia and nsa director michael hayden, and, general, welcome back to "fox news sunday." >> good morning, chris. >> do you look at the new six-month deal with iran as a rea

given all this can also sign up for what it calls an independent foreign policy you know. i did. murderer week the school and need only to the bridge and independents late next year you'd think someone who launched a way to documenting when he labelled a mission statement for the nation's future. just email it to the key points before to buy the present independence movement. scott would be an independent country to six or question that requires a simple yes or no waking at three hundred euro looking at could hardly be said for the scots are not taking it lightly as it stands only about thirty percent of scots say they will vote for independence. the figure those of the gas cap hope to increase by presenting that much anticipated white paper would just watch national party says it has the answers to all the questions about the dependence of my minister david caplan and those who wanted to go cap in since the minute that this is laden with risks and problems with morning sun just about everything. taxes and death no count suggests the worst air and higher taxes. eu membership mon
. more than half of americans also don't like the way he is handling foreign policy. immigration and the economy. the data now raising concerns over what can still be accomplished in his next few years as president. joining us now is our political panel angela mcgrewen, fox knew political analyst, and ronow molono. the president used to enjoy euphoric ratings. now his approval rating is abysmal on all kinds of issues. so ways happening overall? why is this happening? what kind of take do you look at this -- what prism do you look at this through, angela? >> the bottom line is this. are you better off today than you were four years ago? most americans that elected this president yet again, now they're having buyers remorse, because most americans are not better off. if you look at the unemployment rate at 7% but for the black community, last check, it was 13%. the hispanic community has not lowered that much and for women and young adults, if you have a college degree, kelly, most people don't have a job today, so people are looking at this situation and though the president is a
and foreign policy? he needs that trifecta. we are getting it with the economy. the iran deal. i think the other thing is who 2014 benefits. i'm not sure yet. when you listen to the focus group and others, parts and the sense that we have tried in one direction and another direction. where do we go from here? >> what was interesting, somebody said maybe we need an independent. when you play that out for everybody in that focus group, they came around and said i have to pick one party or the other. >> what has been the experience and raise people's hopes and the tea party, that was an experience of frustration by a lot of americans and some people who supported the tea party that is not what we were buying. that's the worst thing is people don't see a way out and feel powerless to affect their own government. >> those people don't vote? they said they were going to vote. >> most will. frustration needs to come up. the 2014 elections are in the same states. >> the federal elections. >> it's more severe. >> dan, fred, susan, thank you all. we will be back. i got my take away and the trivi
. bret? >> domestically the administration has its hands full with obama care. on the foreign policy front, there is a potential bump in the road with iran sanctions in that there is a potential bipartisan deal in congress to move forward -- >> brett, right. we are hearing tonight that senator lindsey graham and several republicans joined by democratic senators, among them chuck schumer of new york, senior man in the democratic leadership, will hold a news conference on tuesday to announce they will introduce a bill that will apply more stringent sanctions on iran unless they meet a set of conditions within six months. far stronger than any imposed so far and would resemble the shape of what they hope will be the final outcome of the negotiation. if the negotiation don't get us there, these sanctions would take effect. >> that is embarrassing for the administration. >> it would be, if they say it strengthens the administration's hands. and the problem is these sanctions might easily pass the senate and if they pass the senate, they will almost certainly pass the house, forcing the pr
period. just as president biden dealing with another foreign policy headaches on the other side of the world. he arrived in tokyo. he was met when he arrived there by caroline kennedy, the new ambassador. this as china is now threatening to declare unilaterally control over airspace long disputed with japan. joining me now with all these challenges, msnbc contributor, former adviser on iran to the white house ambassador dennis ross. thanks for being with us. lets talk about iran. president rouhani declared over the weekend in an interview with the "new york times" they have won the right to enrich, just as we in a hard fought battle with emrates, uae, nonproliferation effort talked them into foreswearing the right to enrich. others in the region are watching the way we handle iran. what do you think of these negotiations as far as they have gone so far? >> well, look, you do have a first step. the idea of having a first step agreement is not that it somehow has transformed the situation, not that it produced a breakthrough we're going to be confident we're going to transform ura
, foreign policy, our place in the world. that was top of mind. and it seems right now, and i want your thoughts, that young people have a lot of different things on their mind from the folks that you're conversing with here. what is this generation's association with the obama presidency? >> yeah. i mean, the big picture that we have seen is that young people are incredibly politically engaged. they voted in a larger percentage in 2012 and 2008, even though there was less enthusiasm about the obama administration the second time around. what we're seeing now is people waiting to make up their minds. i mean, the obama administration will be remembered by the outcome of this health care law. >> do you think more than anything else? >> more than anything else. and our generation will feel the impact of this law for the next two decades. so if we don't get this right, we're in big, big trouble. so for us i think now is the time to really dig in and see whether this law is good for us, and if not, how can we make it better, because this is going to impact us one way or the other for a long
of for the healthcare.gov. should he fire someone? on foreign policy, a tweet -- he will be up on capitol hill to testify about that. there are headlines about that deal. the financial times this morning. is in chinasident and has met with japanese leaders as well. dianne feinstein and robert --endez vice president biden meeting on with asian leaders. we are talking about healthcare.gov. it somebody be fired over its failures? pennsylvania. republican. caller: good morning. i feel that the obama care fiasco has been ruining many people. my son, for instance. 62 years old -- he signed up for security and about two days later he got a letter that he had no more insurance. this is wrong. it is happening to everybody. the insurance companies must be relishing this problem. i think he is wrong and they do that he talks on both sides of his mouth. he tells us one thing and he knows he is going to do something else. i think he has been so unfair to a lot of the american public. i don't think he knows the constitution -- he does not believe in it. i am just so sorry for my son and my other children. i
-- their foreign affairs. the obama administration has assertive in the realm of the next six policy -- domestic policy. regulatory actions that bush executive power beyond all limits. obama is the first president since richard nixon to ignore and enacted law simply because he disagrees with it. in place of the checks and balances established by the constitution, president obama that "i refuse to take no for an answer." "where congress won't act, i will." throughout the obama presidency, we have seen a pattern. president obama circumvents congress when he does not get his way. while congress is currently debating how to reform our immigration laws, the president effectively and acted himself byct ordering immigration officials to stop enforcing immigration laws against certain unlawful immigrants. get hiscouldn't preferred change to the no child left behind education law, he testing accountability provisions. when he objected to the work waiversent, he granted that are specifically forbidden by the statutory text. instead of working with congress to amend federal drug policy, he has instructed p
the significant nature of the shift in american foreign policy that we are seeing laid out before us . i would be honored to recognize my colleague and friend, the gentleman from california, mr. sherman. mr. sherman: i thank the gentleman for yielding. the political pund its are focused on -- pund its, are focused on was this a good deal or a bad deal. we aren't here to give a grade to the administration. we are here in congress to decide what legislation should be passed. congress is a policy-making body, although so often those in the administration think that we are, at most, advisers or critics. but let's take a look at this deal and we'll see that what we get out of it is at least overstated by its proponents. because we are told that this halts their enrichment of uranium. it is true that it limits their 20% uranium. and iran will not be making progress during the six-month period of this deal toward its first bomb. but they will be making very substantial progress toward their eighth, ninth and tenth bomb and iran is not a nuclear power until they have some to hide, one to two to test.
's much of a description of his foreign policy. but congress has lots of power if he chooses to use. the power of the purse is an enormous power, and i think if i were you, i would find ways to influence policy using the congress' powers, which were not doing. for example, we are hearing complaints about the president's actions do not enforce deportation against a certain classes of immigrants. you know, instead of complaining about that, this committee could hold a markup and report of a comprehensive immigration reform bill, send it to the for -- >> mr. lazarus, you are -- not you but the question is too inept minutes over. so you can do this by giving us advice of what our legislative agenda should lock like an answer the question, i would be grateful to you. >> that is an answer. i think on this has a lot of power and it should use it. >> and i assume that the failure to exercise is also an exercise of power. the failure to act. mr. cannon, would you like to briefly -- >> maybe mr. lazarus knows better than i do how many bombs the president has dropped before that becomes more.
of one of obama's hidden foreign policy initiatives over the past five years. he is had secret negotiations me, the israelis, excuse with the radians, and we have seen him at the same time alienate many of our allies in the media it's -- in the mideast. doesn't this act is a clever ploy to keep the israelis from attacking and defending their own national interest -- >> the secret meetings with iranians, where'd you get that from? caller: that was in the press this past week. nott: the meetings have .een anything but on the p5+1 what you're talking about now is making sure and verifying, the whole idea was for iran to not having nuclear weapons. if we had gone in this manner before with iraq, where we railroad -- were able to go and massy no weapons of instruction there, let defectors go where they want unfettered, then maybe we would have been able to avoid the thousands of , thecan lives that we lost devastation to our economy that we had. cy as go, give diplomas chance. if in fact around does not live up to the agreement, we have 20 of time and the ability to do -- toings, to
are at their strongest. foreign affairs. the obama administration go has been equally assertive in the realm of domestic policy, routinely making end runs around congress for broad claims of prosecutorial discretion and regulatory actions that bush executive power beyond all limits. indeed, president obama is the first president since richard nixon to ignore a duly enacted law, simply because he disagrees with it. and they said the checks and balances established by the constitution, president obama has proclaimed that i refuse to take no for an answer, end quote. and i quote, where congress won't act, i will, end quote. throughout the obama presidency, we have seen a pattern. president obama circumvent congress when he doesn't get his way. for instance, while congress is currently debating how to gratian last, the president effectively enact the dream act himself by ordering immigration officials to stop enforcing immigration laws against certain unlawful immigrants. when he couldn't get his preferred changes to the no child left behind education law, unilaterally waived its testing accountability prov
-amnesty groups, at helping foreigners stay in the united states. now that they're at dhs, they can impose these ideas, these ideologies, these policies regardless of what congress does or does not do. >> we've got some of the details. you had written a column on this and you detailed each of them. michael salo in, and others. because everybody has got a very detailed biography, how would you summarize these people? >> they're all on the far left open border side of the equation. look at jennifer lee. when she was at a pro-open borders group, they actually published a pamphlet titled "what to do in the event of a raid." it was given to illegal aliens to help them if they were raided. look at morera wee. she wrote articles attacking dhs before she went to work for dhs because dhs, she was gathering fingerprint data from people they caught crossing the border so they couldn't keep doing it over and over again. she was against that. it's crazy stuff and now they're in the government enforcing immigration law. >> unlike a politician, politicians can get elected out of office. booted out by the
